One of the biggest selling points for P.E.I. mussels is that they are consistently good. We don't claim to be mussel experts, but we find that these mussels are sweet and tender, and they are equally great cooked simply in white wine or in more complex sauces. They tend to be mid-sized with shells the length of your finger and a plump morsel of meat inside.
Our only problem with P.E.I. mussels is that they have gained such a reputation for being "the best" that they can sometimes crowd out other smaller or more local varieties.
What's been your experience of P.E.I. mussels? Have you come across another variety that you like better?
